What causes the RROD RIng of Death on Xbox360?

We can repair Microsoft Xbox 360 RED RING OF DEATH or "RROD" on the Xbox360. The problem is caused by the Microsoft Xbox 360 operating at a very high temperature. This in conjunction with lead-free solder, used in the manufacture process, causes fractures of the solder joints underneath the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit). Insufficient cooling of the GPU causes the solder to fracture or 'creep'. Voids in the solder caused by pockets of gas when manufactured can make the problem worse and more difficult to repair.

New boards, present in all Elite units, operate at lower temperature and are less likely to develop the Ring of Death fault. The older Xbox360 consoles use 16.5amps of power (Printed on the back of the console), newer 14.5amp versions were introduced, then the new 'Jasper' chipsets were released with a newly designed Graphics Chip with a reduced power consumption of - 12amps. Microsoft believe that they have, after spending a lot of money, cured the problem of the 'Ring of Death' on this new design of board.


Microsoft extended their warranty on 'Ring of Death' faults and 'Error 73 and 74' to 3 years.

We can Repair Microsoft Xbox 360 units not covered by Microsoft extended warranty for £40. This involves removing the heat sinks for the CPU and GPU and re attaching them with new heat compound and realignment of the Heat Sinks to more evenly conduct the heat away from the processing units. This has the effect of reducing the overall temperature of the Graphics and Processing chips to avoid overheating of the solder in the future. The fractured connections caused by overheating are repaired by Infrared re flow of the solder on the GPU. Our Xbox360 3 Red Light fix on these units has proved itself to be an extremely reliable repair.

Xbox360 Ring of death cannot be cured with an Oven or Heat gun - Many repair centers are using bad practices in an attempt to repair the Ring of Death. The only way to repair the Ring of death is to re flow the disconnected solder joints using an Infrared BGA rework station. All other methods do not correctly re flow the solder. Heating with an Oven can briefly reconnect the electronic connections but without a full re flow, the problem will reoccur more quickly than a correct Infra Red re flow.

We can Repair Microsoft Xbox 360 Using the latest INFRA-RED technology We use the latest in Infra-Red technology to re-flow the solder on Xbox 360 consoles that have the 3-Red-Light problem. This method is recognized as the best way to safely re flow solder on electronic components and reduces the risk of damage to the GPU as well as providing the best method of repair. It is not safe practice to simply heat the main board as the re-flow temperature of the solder and the failure temperature of the GPU are extremely close. Infra Red is the only way to reach these temperatures safely.

Xbox 360 Error 74 Repair - £40 + £15 collection and delivery in UK


Error 74 on the Xbox360 is similar to the 3-Red-Lights fault as both are caused by the same defect on the Xbox360. Error 74 is caused by the solder cracking underneath the GPU and is just another way that the fault can manifest itself. Error 74 is a more problamatic Error and this fault tends to be more related to the solder having pockets of gas causing voids in the solder joints.

All repairs, providing nobody else has attempted a repair, that we apply to the main board of the Xbox360 are guaranteed for a period of three months. All repairs are carried out at our electronic workshop in North Manchester.
